James Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
It’s a Wonderful Life
Mortal Storm with Margaret Sullivan is really my favorite of his.
It’s A Wonderful Life and Rear Window .
For me, it’s a tie between “Anatomy of a Murder” and “Vertigo”.
Rear Window & Vertigo. Jimmy Stewart & Hitchcock teaming up was Cinematic Brilliance!
Well, don’t forget that Jimmy and Hitch teamed up as early as 1948 with “Rope”. I enjoyed it, but for most viewers it wasn’t cinema magic.
Mr Smith goes to Washington is my favorite James Stewart picture. Not only because he gives a great performance, but because it shows Congressional hypocrisy that seems totally true in today’s Congress.
It’s A Wonderful Life, without a doubt. I always like to think of Rear Window as kind of a sequel to It’s A Wonderful Life, with George Bailey getting able to travel the world as a photographer for National Geographic.
It’s a Wonderful Life goes without saying, but I also love Philadelphia Story and Harvey!
Philadelphia Story. He should have gotten the girl!
I like Jimmy’s gritty performance in Winchester ’73.
I love the movie Shenandoah and James Stewart’s subtle yet powerful performance.
Don’t forget an honorable mention for “Destry Rides Again!”
It’s a Wonderful Life, Mr. Smith and Rear Window
“Vertigo” and “Call Northside 777″. Third is “It’s a Wonderful Life”.
Tied between Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Rear Window!
“Harvey” was Stewart’s best performance.

Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life is as near a perfect performance by any actor committed to celluloid.
